A Hero Arts Retailer

Guest Designer June 2019


Hello everyone,

I am so excited to introduce our June Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta.  Here’s a brief bio of Amy.


I started ‘seriously’ crafting in 2003. For some reason I signed up to be my son’s Co-op Preschool Scrapbook Coordinator. At that point, I hadn’t even scrapbooked yet. I’m happy to say that we still have that scrapbook. I started my Splitcoaststampers Gallery in 2005. I remember seeing blogs and became curious about them. I started mine in 2007. I didn’t start my IG account until April 2015. I was holding out because I didn’t think I could swing the time commitment. I still feel that way but try my best in keeping up with everything. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this awesome papercrafting community.


Now let’s hear from her:

Hi everyone!  It’s Amy Tsuruta and I’m thrilled to be guesting today for the a2zscrapbooking Monthly Challenge – Anything but a Card.
I designed a tag duo especially for today.


My first tag features the Cardinal Stamp & Cut.  I used the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies.  The stamped woodgrain is an older Hero Arts wood mount background stamp.


I recently bought a top and matching cardi that had their tags attached by the pins I used today on my tags.   The cardinal sentiment has been heat embossed in white.
My second circular tag features the Alpaca Stamp & Cut.  I loaded this one up with a bunch of images.


I can’t wait to see how you’re inspired by this month’s challenge!
A big shout out to a2zscrapbooking for the invite!
